• Responsiveness: are we responsive to each other’s needs?

couples therapy."


Why do couples engage in counselling and therapy?
Couples can learn what ‘Master Couples’ or ‘Expert Couples’ do. Master or Expert Couples engage in dialogue; they make small yet consistent efforts to build a strong relationship and repair any past or present impairment.

Expert Couples focus on:
• Emotion – anger isn’t bad, it is what you do with it that counts
• Building skills to manage conflict
• Developing new skills to respect and admire their partners as their best friends
• Creating a shared vision


Frequently asked questions

• What happens in couples therapy?

The first three sessions involve thorough fact-finding. You are asked to complete a comprehensive questionnaire to analyse your relationship. Once you gain a better understanding of how the relationship is functioning, you then learn how to repair it. All couples have problems that will not go away, but with education into new skills and practice you can respond in supportive and caring ways.

• How long are the sessions?

Sessions are on a weekly basis and last between 60 to 90 minutes. Some couples require fast change and sessions run between six and 15 weeks. Other couples may take a couple of years. It depends on the issues presented. Completion happens when couples say, “What do we need a therapist for?” The cost is aligned to industry standards. Please email or call for this information.
